2013 Kansas City Royals Repository Thread

Proposed 2013 Slogan: Tigers: They're what's for dinner
Actual 2013 Slogan: Come to Play
A better, more accurate, or alternative slogan: All in, no panic, we promise.

Dayton Moore has pushed all his chips in and is riding on King/Jack suited, hoping it comes together, he gets some good luck, and he hits the nuts by the river card. There's potential, oh yes, there's potential. There's also risk.

At the midway point, Dayton is left counting on the river card. The flop and turn didn't help him, and he's looking at the Tigers holding a pair of Queens and the Indians holding a pair of 9s. His 2013 plan hasn't failed - yet - but the odds are not in his favor.

Burning questions updates below.

Burning Questions for 2013:

1) Will the improve rotation be improved enough? Does James Shields pitch like a fringe No. 1 away from Tampa Bay? Does Ervin Santana pitch to his highest upside in his walk year? Can Jeremy Guthrie build on his strong performance as a Royal in 2012? Can Wade Davis bring his new mentality- and velocity - back to the rotation?

Midseason check-in: Yes, the rotation is certainly improved enough. Shields has pitched like a fringe No. 1 and Santana is having his best season. Guthrie has horrible peripherals but has continued to perform well at his home park and eat innings on the road. Davis brought neither his kick-ass mentality or improved velocity back to the rotation and is in Luke Hochevar/Hiram Davies territory.

2) When will Luke Hochevar be shown the door?
Midseason check-in: It appears, never, at this point. Hochevar has been solid in non-leverage situations, though pretty much every time he has been used with men on base in an inning, it has been a disaster.

3) Does Hosmer bounce back?
Midseason check-in: It took some time, but Hosmer's performance from June 1 on is probably the most encouraging thing about the 2013 season so far.
4) Can Moustakas hit for a whole season like he did in the first half of 2012?
Midseason check-in: Nope. Moustakas was god-awful, then great for about 3 weeks, then god-awful again. He has been better since he started working with Brett and Grafol but still has a long way to go.
5) Who regresses?
Midseason check-in: Welp, Alicides Escobar is not a surprising name here (though Yost's stubborn insistence on hitting him second is ridiculous). Billy Butler is a surprise. He isn't having a terrible year - still contributing a lot to the offense - but he's not hitting for the average or power he has displayed over the past several years.
6) Who plays 2B?
Midseason check-in: A whole bunch of people, and not that great. Gio is at least getting a shot, though he once again is not doing much with it.
7) Can Jeff Francoeur be at least replacement level, rather than epic horrible level?
Midseason check-in: Hahahahahahahahahahaha
8) Will Dayton Moore survive to see 2014?
Midseason check-in: Outlook uncertain. Probably still around, unless the team completely tanks in the second half and he does something foolish. My guess - he sacrifices Ned Yost this offseason and gets one more shot with a new manager in 2014.
9) Will Danny Duffy come back healthy? And if he does, is he the same, better or worse?
Midseason check-in: Yes. Velocity looks the same, and it looks likely he is the same guy as before.
10) And the big one: Has KC added enough to run down the big-money Detroit Tigers?
Midseason check-in: Doesn't look like it, does it?

OK, I'm a little steamed at the Royals Promotions Wanks again.

This year they're doing the "KC Royals Salute the KC A's" again.

Why???? WTF????? How many times to we have to "salute" these bastards???

Look, Charlie Finley held KC for ransom, told this town to go F itself, moved the team to OAKLAND in the middle of the Chiefs-Raiders AFL rivalry. Then, when KC got the Royals, it was OAKLAND that pushed the Royals down like bullies every year until 1976, when the Royals finally got over the hump.

Not only that, but Finley pulled the team out of here right before they hit their stride as a dynasty in the early 1970s. They were our biggest rival before the Yankees, because they kept us from getting to the playoffs for many years.

So why the HELL do we want to honor these assholes?


I looked at the Milwaukee Brewers site. Do you think they honor the Atlanta Braves? The Braves left Milwaukee for Atlanta. No. I looked at the Seattle Mariners Site. Do you think they honor the Milwaukee Brewers? The Seattle Pilots left Seattle to become the Brewers in Milwaukee. No. Do you think the New York Mets honor the San Francisco Giants for leaving New York? No.

So WTF is with the Royals????? God, these PR wanks are clueless. We might as well have "Kiss the Yankees Ass" night. Tobey Cook: Get to work!

The 2012 Orioles were one of the luckiest teams in the history of baseball. They broke a 104-year old record on 1-run winning percentage. CNNSI.com has a pretty decent article on it now.
